Re: new deer rifle
PaHunter, I have no problem matching the velocity of the US military .300WinMag A191 cartridge with the same 190 gr Sierra Match King, but with my .300WSM and I moly my bullets. Just like the govt tactical rifles, I have a Mike Rock 5R barrel finished at 26".
Also the old WinMag load with the 220 gr Match King at 2650, for which Leupold still has bdc cams available, is easily equaled with WSM handloads in even 24" barrels.
Rapid fire is the crutch of an incompetent marksman. ONE SHOT, ONE KILL
